Absolute Carnage Is Coming To Marvel Comics (C2E2 2019)

No superhero is safe, and everyone is a target! That’s what Marvel told panel goers at C2E2 in Chicago today, releasing details of an event that all starts on Free Comic Book Day this year. Fans will get a taste of what’s to come on Spider-Man/Venom #1 on May 5th. Bits and pieces will be released in Spider-Man issues after that, but the big event starts in August.

Writer Donny Cates will team up with Ryan Stegman once again. You might remember the pair had a great run with Venom in 2018. Cates had this to say about Absolute Carnage, in a video released by Marvel:

Cletus Kasady is back, and he is deadlier than he’s ever been,” Cates teases in the video announcement. “ABSOLUTE CARNAGE encompasses every single character who has ever worn a symbiote and every symbiote that has ever been, going all the way back to when Peter found the black suit. Going from there to MAXIMUM CARNAGE to VENOMIZEDto everything…everyone is a target.”

How excited are you for the return of Carnage and this upcoming Marvel Comics event?
